What is a Satellite Phone?
Satellite phones (sat phone, terminal, satellite cell phone) are mobile communication devices designed to connect to a satellite to communicate when you’re in a geographical area that doesn’t have any cellular coverage.

With constant advances in technology, we can go beyond communicating with voice and text via satellite because now it’s possible to transmit data too using a Wi-Fi satellite hotspot device.

Smart connectivity technology works with mobile satellite antennas, wireless satellite hotspots, and portable satellite internet terminals to transmit voice and data and keep you connected to the world, no matter where you are.

How Does It Work
Iridium, Inmarsat, and Thuraya are satellite communications providers that use different configurations and technologies specifically, Geosynchronous satellites (GEO) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) systems over different global locations.

Satellite phones and satellite internet devices transmit voice and data by connecting to one of these satellites in the sky. The days of sat phones being these chunky and heavy pieces of equipment are fading fast with advances in technology.

Satellite communication devices are offering more and more features like Internet and Bluetooth connectivity and one day the sat phone will be on par with the smartphone. Feature-rich phones are typically more expensive so when looking for your first sat phone, consider they’re meant for emergency communications in isolated areas or places without a cellular infrastructure.

Rent a Satellite Phone
Canada Satellite offers affordable satellite phone rental solutions combined with mobile satellite internet rental bundles that are within the reach of any adventurer. Satellite phone rental prices depend on the preferred satellite phone handset, the portable satellite internet device, rental duration, and the airtime and data requirements.

Satellite Phone Rental
Top of the range sat phones are available as a satellite phone rental giving you peace of mind that your rented satellite communication devices are as reliable and secure. 

The Iridium 9555, the Iridium 9575 Extreme, Iridium GO!, Inmarsat Isatphone Pro, Inmarsat Isatphone 2 and the Thuraya XT Lite offer varying levels of satellite phone rental prices with benefits and features you can use from any location in the world.

Portable Satellite Internet Rental
The smarter technology gets, the more we can do with less physical or geographical restrictions. Twenty years, we could only send a photo from our desktop while remaining connected to a cable modem. Today, we can send a photo from the South Pole, from our phone.

  • Inmarsat’s IsatHub smart technology.
  • Virgin Technologies mobile satellite antennas.
  • The Explorer 510 global wireless satellite internet hotspot.
  • Hughes 9202 BGAN portable satellite internet terminal.
Our satellite phone rental prices are tailored in different bundles to suit most travellers’ needs. Data bundles start from US $7.99 per MB on pay-as-you go options or pay less per megabyte on monthly bundles.

Satellite Phone Rental Reviews

The satellite phone was well used both by us while crossing the Atlantic and by fellow passengers along with emergency services in St. Lucia as the airport flooded and was closed for 4 days at Christmas. I had the only phone that was working.

It was good we had a satellite phone with us, one of our friends got lost for three days and three nights in the woods. It was a large effort from Ontario Provincial Police, canine units and military support from Trenton.
He was found safe and sound and returned to the cabin.
All the best

As Iridium phones have their own virtual international country code, every call to or from a satellite phone is an international call.  To dial out on your Iridium satellite phone, press 00 (international call out), then the country code (North America is 1), then area code and finally the phone number.  For example, our retail location in calgary would be 00-1-403-918-6300.  For phones with newer firmware, when you press 1, the plus symbol will insert itself automatically into the dialling sequence.  In this scenario, dial +1-403-918-6300.
